Now the two must form a wary alliance to track a strange new threat, a creature of rage and hatred that threatens the newfound peace of Faery, in the opening to a grand new adventure in the enthralling world of the Iron Fey.

My Review: 

This book continues the story that Julie Kagawa created so long ago with the Iron Fey this one tells the story of the wedding of Meghan Chase's brother Ethan and his beloved.  Meghan's son Keirran is heading to the wedding being reminded of a past love he had and helping Puck who is up to his usual tricks and creates alot of doves for the wedding that keep multiplying.  

While dealing with the doves The King of the Forgotten stumbles upon a fey assassin Nyx whose looking for the Queen of Fey.  The one who he killed.  Keirran finds himself unsure what to do with Nyx but takes her up on her offer the stand and protect him.

It was a beautifully told story about Keirran in a more of redemption way we know he has had some mistakes but in the land of fey who hasn't made major mistakes?  It was interesting to see him wanting to redeem himself.  I really think he's trying to turn it around anyway he can.  It will be interesting to see how this plays out!
